This course provides the groundwork and foundation for all other learning to occur. Without a solid grasp of correct technique in the fundamentals, it is difficult to improve or develop any consistency of play. Allowing improper technique to continue (we have all heard of the 10,000 hours rule), creates fundamental bad habits which are much more difficult to correct at later stages of development. The SkillsMaster™ program is a high intensity multi-faceted session that includes a lot of detailed coaching in an environment where all players are challenged at their ability level and where they experience how much fun soccer training and development can be.
All players are encouraged to develop good playing habits and confidence. During our program the players work on all technical aspects of the game, gaining the necessary foundation in order to build the confidence and skill required for performing out on the field during games. This includes passing, receiving, dribbling, 1v1 skills, defending, finishing, all progressing from 1v1 to 2v2 up to 6v6. Like all of our sessions every player works with a ball to receive maximum ball touches.
All sessions begin with a warm up followed by the technical topical session, unopposed, opposed and finishing with small sided games.
